Oy. Earlier in the year I had success transferring a few of these to DVD, but I guess I got lucky and picked "good" ones. I just dumped a large load of these 2012 uploads to disc. Results varied greatly from file to file, but half or more of them just "didn't work". The DVD encoders (I tried several) apparently couldn't make sense of whatever interlace thing is going on with them, and there were doubled frames and mushy artifacts abounding. The problem remains a mystery...

I've been having similar results, a few videos actually worked quite well after removing pulldown, but the majority are just as you describe, mushy weird frames in between 3 or 4 nice, solid ones...

Please keep us up to date with your efforts, I think there is probably some way to write an expression in after effects that will remove frames in any way you desire, but I don't know much about expressions...

No automation yet. So far, I'm simply identifying which sequences I need, and isolating frames semi-manually as described above. I don't want to complain at all, though, because free is good. Lots of this footage is very useful. Some clients want seldom seen retro imagery. The extra effort required to properly derive clean shots from most of 2012's uploads makes it less likely others will go to the trouble, so the footage I use is potentially more unfamiliar to a client's audience.

Update: The TONS of otherwise wonderful Prelinger uploads from the last nine months also suffer from the problems I mentioned above. That's too bad. Re-encoding that many files properly and re-uploading would take a huge, frustrating amount of time. Do-overs are no fun at all.
